Why after my phone is unplugged and battery drops to let's say 90-91% after restart of the device it raises up to 95-96%. What is wrong with the battery-meter?

I've been noticing similar bugs in battery levels since I updated to 5.1.1. Just yesterday, I noticed the battery was showing 53%, but as soon as I plugged in, it changed to 14% :eek:

Have had that problem all the time, unplug it in the morning, and 30 minutes later, it's down to 95%. Turn it off and restart it, and it's back at 100%.

Maybe it's a bug in the calibration software/hardware? Who knows, but i've discharged it fully, charged it to 100% and it still does it. Just means every now and again i reboot it and it seems to work fine for a while, plus it only takes a minute or so to shutdown and reboot.

Every iPhone I have had has done that, even after calibrating the battery. Only fixed I have come across is to shutdown the phone and turn it back on, it's not hurting anything so it's never bothered me much but I wish apple would fix it.
